MARKET PRICE

PERFORMANCE-IN-DEVELOPMENT

2022

Bruce the American Lobster leads the audience through a lecture-performance that traces the changing cultural perception of lobsters throughout time—from overabundant marine protein to pauper’s food, and from luxury commodity to sentient being. 

 

Market Price explores the politics of seafood, class, immigration, geography, technology, and animal perception.

Created for Tania El Khoury's Collaborations and Community-Based Art course, part of the M.A. in Human Rights and the Arts at Bard College.
